A daily prayer from the New England Conference
Members of the New England Conference Extended Cabinet are sharing a daily prayer based on the Revised Common Lectionary for the week.
You are welcome to use these in worship or in your own devotions.
Lord, you call us to go where you send us and to say what you tell us to say. We cannot help but be humbled and afraid by such a calling. You appoint us to dig up and pull down, to destroy and demolish, to build and to plant. Help us Lord to put our fears aside so we may pull down and destroy the ills in our world, hatred, bigotry, racism and poverty. Help us to build up love, community, generosity, and compassion. May we always remember that you go with us to guide, encourage and strengthen our resolve to do your will. You are our Rock and Redeemer. Amen.
By Rev. Dr. Jacquelyn Brannen, Katahdin District Superintendent Jeremiah 1:4-10
